A couple weeks ago at about 10:30 PM, we were getting ready to go to bed. I was exhausted, and was more than ready to go to sleep. Michelle, on the other hand, was not. She wanted to watch The Good Wife, a new show we’ve been watching.
Meeche: Do you want to watch The Good Wife?
Joe: Not really, I’m tired as hell.
Meeche: Well I’m not.
Joe: Ugh, do you want to just watch it then?
Meeche: No, it’s fine.
Joe: We can.
Meeche: No, just forget it.
Joe: (Thinking really hard) Ok.
Meeche: (Walks away)
40 minutes later, lying in bed, both still awake.
Meeche: You know, we could have watched the show by now.
Joe: I said we could have watched it.
Meeche: If you really wanted to watch it, you would have put it on in the first place.
Joe: (Still thinking, to no avail)
Now I like to think of this as a teaching point. I feel like writing these things down and thinking about them…still…that maybe I’ll figure out how to avoid these situations in the future. I’m trying here. At some point in this lifetime, I will figure it out.
But there is another thing going on here, and I think the two are related. Another one of my problems, besides not getting hints, is that I don’t hear things that Michelle says to me. I don’t intentionally not listen. We’re having a full blown conversation, and we’re both saying things back and forth, and then when I ask Michelle something later in the day, she says she already told me the answer. And she’s mad.
I think that I would have remembered her telling me something. Not only do I not remember her telling me this in the first place, but I don’t even remember asking the question. I have a serious problem on my hands. Either I’m crazy, she thinks she told me something and she’s crazy, or I have severe memory loss at 25.
As much as it sucks to fight over stupid crap, this is my attempt to laugh at it later.
Too soon, Meeche?
